Homosexuality and the Bible

Aug 15, 2011 | Posted by: Selecia Jones- JAX FL | Full story: www.smh.com.au

Given the ongoing debate about same-sex marriage, it is time I looked at the two Testaments to remind myself why belief is so hard for me to embrace.

The zealous homophobic argument:
- Homosexuality is condemned in the Bible. Therefore it is wrong to be gay. Therefore I am able to justify my hatred towards you.
Reasonable modern argument:
-The same part of the Bible that condemns homosexuality is the same part that condemns shrimp, pork, haircuts, shaving, wearing two different fabrics and planting two different seeds in the same field.
- Anyone who follows Leviticus to the letter in modern society would rightly be locked away in a mental institution
- Christianity is only one of many religions, and the Bible itself is open to many interpretations.
- The Christian Bible carries the overall view of not judging people and loving each other. Judgement should be saved for God etc.
- Homosexuality, Homosexual relationships, and Homosexual marriages have been widely recorded in history and predates Christianity by thousands of years.
- Not everyone shares the views portrayed by Christians, and many Christians do not have an issue with homosexuality. It is against your own religion and also that of western society to impose hateful views on others (imposing hateful views is similar to the Nazi party in the late 30s...)
Honey, you clearly don't know sh/t about the Bible, let alone the laws and not to mention comparing anything to the Nazi's.

I assert you have posted someone else's thinking and are incapable of defending any single aspect of it.

Genius, we're still waiting for you to say what word was replaced by homosexual in bibles in 1946, and your defense of why homosexual is a better translation. In context, of course. Unless you're unable, that is...

I love how you have to resort to foul language in an attempt to discredit my argument, yet at the same time your rather rude response didn't actually counter to acknowledge any of my points.

Why?

Because you are unable to justify your hatred and you are merely regurgitating hateful thoughts fed to you from twisted sources.

Actually i'm asserting widely held modern beliefs with my own twist on them. You can't really downplay my argument just because it is held by other people. Also the terms "pot" and "kettle" come to mind considering how you are defending a 2000-year-old text which is filled with hypocrisy.

Alternate universe gay Robert, is everyone in your world really as obsessed with oral/fecal sex as you are?
Over here, the only people really obsessed with oral/fecal sex to your level are people we call "homophobes".

Perhaps this is over your head, since yesterday you thought it was Hebrew. Give it a try and see how ignorant the argument you are referencing really is:

I see. Christian bigots are still finding way to justify their horrible behavior.

Thanks David.

Actually you are spouting uneducated misinformation you've read elsewhere and know nothing about personally.

When challenged to defend it, you duck.

I'm fully ready to answer any assertions I made.

Well, it's not so good if they are straight, but perfectly normal if they were gay.

So, which is it, based on the context of those Scriptures? Were those being admonished straight, or were they gay?

You aren't Christian, so what's it to you? It's not like you have any desire whatsoever to be a winsome light that draws people to God.

You are about as far from that ideal as possible.

So, why pretend you are something you are not?

At least be honest.

And Kimare pretends to be Christian.

NoIQ, you really have to stop obsessing over gay anal sex. Do you ever leave your mom's basement?

If I believed in God, I would nominate him/her/it for the Nobel prize. First, for putting so many irresistible penises and vulvas in the world, and second, for allowing me to fondle and suck so many of 'em.

By the context of design and instruction in the very first chapters of the Bible, that behavior was forbidden by anyone.

Always been clear to most people even outside the Judeo/Christian ethic.

You sound angry...

What you are discovering is that truth and love and wisdom are united.

You might discover me as someone different on the other side of denial...
